'Awesome' zip wire ride for 90-year-old's birthday

A partially-sighted man says he is "still on cloud nine" after flying down the fastest zip line in the world for his 90th birthday.

Bob Hill, a former Merchant Navy man from Chorley in Lancashire raised more than £1,000 for Blind Veteran UK after his zip wire experience in Snowdonia.

He said: "Once I got to the bottom, I asked them if they could send me straight back up.

"I was desperate to do it again. It was just awesome."
